This church is the recipient of a 4-manual Walker donated to them by an organization who had "no use" for it...

Their efforts prevented its destruction...

Currently installation is in progress, and soon it will be heard again.

Really? Last I heard they'd discovered it wouldn't fit in the church at Abertillery, the whole project had stalled and the big Walker was languishing in a damp, draughty barn with little to no prospect of ever sounding again...

Oh, dear me :o  The page I linked to above in light of the information you provided could be at best...

I don't think they will like you referring to St Michael's as a damp, drafty barn  ;)

Just came across a selection of Christmas carols played on the Walker in its original home
